REPORT OF THE HOARD OF TRUSTEES 

TO THE MEMBERS OF THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART 



Ladies and Gentlemen: 

Last year saw the completion of many projects on which we had been 
working for a long time. In 1939, at the outbreak of the war, we had only 
seventy-five galleries, and hence many fine works of art already in our 
possession could not be shown to the public. By the time the war ended, 
seventy-five new galleries had been completed and these have now been 
installed and opened. Many more collections can now be shown, notably 
the Barnard Collection of the Art of the Middle Ages, purchased through 
the generosity of a group of our friends. The opening of this Collection 
just before Christmas, on an evening of the greatest beauty both for the 
eye and for the ear, will long be remembered. Our Corot exhibition in 
the spring was a notable achievement, and the favorable comments of our 
guests from far and near confirmed the deep interest it aroused and the 
pleasure it afforded. 

In reviewing the years of development of the Museum, and its steady 
advance to higher and higher achievements, we must be ever grateful to 
those who made this possible : to the City Council for generously providing 
the funds for construction and maintenance, to the Commissioners of 
Fairmount Park who had the courage to initiate the building of our 
present monumental home, and to the members of our governing bodies 
and to other friends who have never failed to back the many bold moves 
the Museum has made in acquiring distinguished additions to its treasures. 
The past year particularly has been notable for its many fine gifts, headed 
by the important Collins Collection of illuminated manuscripts. 

The Museum's two schools — the School of Industrial Art and the Phila- 
delphia Textile Institute— have courageously endured the difficulties of 
the war years. Their classes are now full and they have again struck their 
forward stride. To the devotion of their Deans and teaching staffs are 
due the high standards of the Schools and the fine results they are obtain- 
ing. The Fleisher Art Memorial, formerly the Graphic Sketch Club, now 
forms an important addition to our educational work. Its renovated 
buildings are crowded with students, and the high ideals of its generous 
founder are being well followed. 



11 



h. sad loss occurred during the year in the death of John Story Jenks, 
our Vice-President for some twelve years, and Chairman of the Committee 
on Museum since 1926. He gave us twenty years of devoted service, 
during which time he saw the Museum he so loved climb from relative 
obscurity to a high place among our national Museums of Art.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE MUSEUM 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND TRUSTEES OF THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART 



These are times when the future of private support for charitable and 
educational institutions is often called into question. The rate of return 
on investments has fallen sharply and is still falling. The weight of taxa- 
tion, even on small incomes, diminishes the readiness of people to pay 
membership dues — especially in the very classes of the public from which 
institutional membership used to be chiefly drawn. While on large incomes 
the net cost of charitable contributions of money, up to the limit of the 
15% exemption, is now very small, even this net cost bears heavily on 
remaining income after taxes. Except through capital gains it is now 
very difficult for people to make such fortunes as formerly were given 
away freehandedly to institutions, so that the hopes of such institutions 
for additional endowment must rest largely on fortunes already in exis- 
tence, which, under inheritance tax laws, it is now difficult to pass on 
to descendants. 

We can acknowledge the force of all these observations without fearing 
at all for the future of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Fortunately it 
has, like the National Gallery of Art and like the Metropolitan Museum, 
not only private but public support — sufficient to finance the maintenance 
and repair of buildings and the guardianship of the collections. Since the 
great depression following 1929, in which our appropriation was very 
sharply cut, City Council restored and repeatedly increased it to man 
new galleries and to meet the increased cost of services: 

1931 $168,000 1943 $210,044 

1941 100,000 1944 222,480 

1942 124,000 1945 232,480 

1946 $243,480 

The City is doing its part splendidly and will doubtless continue to do 
this as the number of our galleries further increases. What we need for 
other phases of our work must come from private sources. 

As in the other museums mentioned, our higher staff, our exhibitions and 
other activities, as well as the increase of collections, are financed by 
private generosity. Here, as at the Metropolitan, the staff so provided 
includes all the administrative, curatorial, educational, secretarial and 



13 



clerical salaries aside from those in the Department of Buildings. Here 
this staff, unlike that of the Metropolitan, which has very large endow- 
ments, has had necessarily to be kept small. It could well be more ample; 
indeed, not to compare with the Metropolitan, our operating budget is 
about $100,000 a year less than those of the comparable museums in 
Washington, Boston, and Chicago. 

For the support of this part of the budget in Philadelphia there are the 
resources of endowment, of membership, of earnings and of contributions. 
Let us consider these briefly one by one. 

The desirability of increased endowment is too obvious to need elabora- 
tion. Alone among the great museums of America — perhaps because its 
rise has been among the most recent— the Philadelphia Museum is very 
weak in this one resource. Latest published figures on total productive 
funds, whether held directly or beneficially, are as follows (book value, 
less than market value) : 

Metropolitan Museum of Art $38,107,000 

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston 14,530,000 

Toledo Museum of Art about 14,000,000 

Art Institute of Chicago (1943) 12,907,000 

Cleveland Museum of Art 7,678,000 

William Rockhill Nelson Gallery, 

Kansas City 11,000,000 

National Gallery of Art 5,000,000 

Philadelphia Museum of Art 3,151,000 

Museum membership, other than life membership, is generally at a much 
lower level than before the depression of 1929. In Philadelphia the number 
of members paying annual dues fell from 3,578 in 1932 to 1,157 in 1944, 
with a total revenue of $11,875. At the Metropolitan, the number of such 
members was 3,965 (in 1944), at Chicago 3,759 (1943), at Boston 2,148 
(1945). A determined effort to increase annual membership has now 
raised the number at Philadelphia to 1392, and this effort will be con- 
tinued. We deeply appreciate the civic spirit of our members who support 
our work. It is obvious, however, membership receipts cannot be a major 
factor in the budget in a museum which must be open free to the public 
at all times. 

A source of revenue often overlooked is the earnings of the Museum for 
special services: sales of publications and photographs, rental fees of 
circulating exhibitions, of films and slides, tuition fees for classes, and so 



14 



on. This, which has now risen here to over $18,000, represents the staff's 
own contribution, by work additional to its other duties, to the income 
of the Museum. It is creditable, but can never be more than a minor 
resource. 

Living donors — chiefly members of our governing bodies and other old 
friends of the Museum — have been generous in Philadelphia in supple- 
menting deficient endowment by contributions for operation and activities. 
What is needed is to expand the circle of these donors by finding new 
friends, to raise the total of such contributions to say $100,000 a year. 

As concerns the increase of Museum collections, existing tax laws are 
very favorable. Gifts in kind are as deductible as gifts in cash, and leave 
the donor with a welcome net cash saving in taxes. This advantage has 
greatly reinforced the practice by which, through the generosity of the 
owners, the bulk of private collections in America pass to museums for 
the enjoyment of the public. As regards purchases, the suggestion has 
been made that the great era of accumulation is over. On the contrary, 
we believe that a new era of accumulation in America is opening, with 
important collections and works coming from Europe to America at 
an accelerated tempo. Let us hope that means will be found to enable 
the Philadelphia Museum to participate richly in such acquisitions. 
Enormously broad in the scope of its collections, the Museum still lacks 
major works of certain outstanding old masters of painting, particularly 
of the 16th and 17th centuries, and specifically (not to speak of Leonardo 
and Michelangelo) of Raphael, Titian, Tintoretto, El Greco, Velasquez, 
Rembrandt and Rubens, as well as Goya and Ingres. Such works will be 
coming to America; let us not fail to get our share of them. 

Our neighbor the Metropolitan Museum is celebrating its seventy-fifth 
anniversary, which falls next year, by raising the sum of ten million 
dollars, $7,500,000 of it through a general appeal. We too have a Diamond 
Jubilee coming, in 1950, and we should not neglect the opportunity of 
appealing for both public and for private support. Let us suppose that 
five million would be a suitable goal: one, we might hope from the City, 
toward the completion of our building; one for capital purchases of Euro- 
pean masterpieces, one to provide income for purchases of the work of 
American artists, two as endowment for the support of our staff and 
activities. Is this too much to ask of Philadelphia, which has, in a score 
of years, brought its Museum already to a position in the leading rank 
in America? 



15 



THE YEAR 1945-1946 

This year saw the war over, with corresponding increase in costs but also 
with the generous openhandedness characteristic of America, especially 
in good times. It saw the resumption of great loan exhibitions, including 
very notable ones at this Museum, where also the galleries were enriched 
by the installation of the vast collection of mediaeval art bought last 
year, as well as by several distinguished new purchases. 



ACQUIRING 

Gifts this year were in many fields, with notable purchases in painting 
and in the decorative arts, as well as in prints. As individual highlights 
among these acquisitions, one may call special attention to the illuminated 
manuscripts of the Collins collection, to the two important tapestries, the 
Peale Staircase Group, and the wonderful items of silver. 



ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS: 
THE COLLINS COLLECTION 

Hitherto, while not wholly devoid of mediaeval illuminated manuscripts, 
the Museum has lacked any really extensive or important body of them. 
This gap has now been filled by the splendid gift by Mrs. Philip S. Collins 
of her late husband's collection of twenty-three superb illuminated manu- 
scripts on vellum. With few exceptions the manuscripts date from the 
XV century and come from such distinguished sources as the Beatty, 
Spitzer, Bishop, and Lothian libraries. One of the most famous is a French 
version of St. Augustine's City of God, about 1410, containing over sixty 
illuminated miniatures of exquisite workmanship. Another equally famous, 
is the Pembroke Book of Hours, about 1440, containing among others, a 
large illuminated miniature of the Earl of Pembroke kneeling before an 
altar in a chapel (probably Wilton Abbey). There are thirteen other 
Books of Hours of French, Spanish, English, and Flemish origin, contain- 
ing, as is customary in such sumptuous books of devotion, many full-page 
highly-finished miniatures in full color, decorative initials in color and 
burnished gold, and marginal designs of fruit, flowers, animals, drolleries, 
and the like. Interesting, too, for students of Gregorian music is a Graduate 
Missarum or manual of plain song, executed around 1400 for use in Paris.

Notable among the secular works is a XV century Roman de la Rose. 
These unique examples, displaying the art of the mediaeval scribe and 
illuminator in fullest flower, are on exhibition in the Mediaeval Section 
of the Museum. 

Other collections acquired this year were, except for the interesting and 
varied one given by Mrs. Harald Paumgarten, of coherent groups, out- 
lined in their respective classes below. Among individual items, only the 
more important can receive mention. 



PAINTINGS 

Of older paintings, the acquisitions this year were chiefly of the British 
school. John H. McFadden, whose father's bequest chiefly contributed 
to the Museum its great strength in this field, gave a number of works 
by masters hitherto not represented, including a Wheatley, a Bonington, 
and two of Samuel Scott's views of London. Closely related, and also 
his gifts, are a fine conversation piece of four English gentlemen in Rome 
by Pompeo Battoni, and two scenes of British worthies in Portugal during 
the Peninsular War by Noel. We had the pleasure of hanging during the 
winter the notable Turner St. Mark's Place by Moonlight, lent by Mrs. 
G. Macculloch Miller. 

While the increments of contemporary European painting, in which we 
are so rich, were limited to a group lent by Mrs. Josiah Marvel, Jr., the 
additions in American painting were extensive. These were headed by 
Charles Willson Peale's Staircase Group, artistically his masterpiece, 
added to the George W. Elkins Collection by purchase from the fund 
left by Mr. Elkins, generously supplemented by his daughters Mrs. 
Wharton Sinkler and Mrs. George F. Tyler. Mrs. Alex Simpson, Jr. and 
A. Carson Simpson added further works to the Simpson Collection, by 
Gari Melchers, Metcalf, Twachtman, Carroll Tyson, and Guy Wiggins. 
Charles Bregler added an Eakins sketch for the Rush Carving, to our 
unique assemblage of this master. Mrs. Cyrus McCormick gave John 
Sloan's Three A.M. (1909) and The White Way (1926) rounding out our 
group by this dean of living American painters. Other donors broadened 
our representation of such artists: Briggs W. Buchanan, by Eugene 
Berman's Bridges of Paris; Mrs. A. W. Erickson, by two works of William 
Malherbe; Mr. and Mrs. Gustave E. Landt, by water colors of Edward 
Hopper and Ogden Pleissner; Mrs. Herbert Cameron Morris by a still 



17 



life of Milton Avery and a String Quartet of Dan Lutz; and the estate of 
Anne Goldthwaite, by several of her oils and water colors. 

Our position in contemporary Mexican art was further strengthened by 
a gift of Miss Ines Amor, Siqueiros' War, and by loans from Henry Clifford, 
John McAndrew and William H. Taylor. 

PRINTS AND DRAWINGS 

In the course of the year there have been numerous accessions in the 
Department of Prints and Drawings. In all, 547 prints, 154 drawings and 
4 illustrated books or manuscripts were added to the permanent collec- 
tion by purchase and by gift from various generous donors including the 
Lea Prize Fund, the Philadelphia Water Color Club, Morris Blackburn, 
Gordon Block, Jr., Henry Clifford, Bernard Davis, Fiske Kimball, 
Mrs. John Frederick Lewis, Jr., Hans Tietze, Curt Valentin, and Arthur 
Wiesenberger. 

Among the purchases, of prime importance are the four large and rare 
lithographs of Bull Fights by Goya, 48 prints by Corot including some 
beautiful early states and other rare proofs, all acquired through the 
Mcllhenny Fund income; the complete set of 16 lithographs illustrating 
Hamlet by Delacroix mentioned below, and two exceptional Japanese 
prints by Kiyomasu and Utamaro, acquired through the Morris Fund. 
Through a Pilling Fund exchange 12 prints by Bone, Blake, Bracquemond, 
Legros and others, including a complete set of the lithographs of Brown's 
Portrait Gallery were obtained, all of them in keeping with the range 
and quality of the W. S. Pilling Collection. 

By bequest there came from the Estate of Augustus W. Jordan, 33 prints 
by Benson, Buhot, Koellner, Pennell, Roth and the like; from the Estate 
of Edward Epstean, 13 prints and drawings, chiefly by Haskell and 
Sterner; from the Estate of Anne Goldthwaite, 51 prints and 4 water color 
drawings by her. 

As usual the bulk of the acquisitions were through gifts. The munificent 
gift of mediaeval illuminated manuscripts to the Museum by Mrs. Philip 
S. Collins has already been mentioned on another page. In addition to 
the donors listed above we gratefully chronicle the following. 

From Mr. and Mrs. John Sloan, a unique collection, possibly the only 
one of its kind extant, of original drawings, newspaper prints, and other 
memorabilia by artists of the Philadelphia press, such as Glackens, Gruger,

From R. Sturgis Ingersoll, an early proof of an etching by D. Hopfer, 
The Proverbs of Solomon, together with an original pen and ink drawing, 
the preliminary study for the same etching and thus a combination of 
related drawing and print seldom found among old masters; by the same 
donor in conjunction with Frederic L. Ballard, Alexander Cassatt, Staunton 
B. Peck and Mrs. William Potter Wear, eight early proofs of prints by 
Mary Cassatt including one in color. 

From the Philadelphia Print Club, 138 prints and drawings to become 
part of their "Permanent Collection," housed in and presented to the 
Museum, including choice prints by Diirer, Raimondi, Agostino Veneziano, 
Guercino, Piranesi, Hollar, Delacroix, Charlet, Raffet, Chasseriau, Manet, 
Cezanne; a group of early mezzotints by Vaillant, Blooteling, and the 
like ; and a large group of contemporary prints in all mediums by American 
and foreign artists. 

From the Ketterlinus Lithographic Manufacturing Company — an example 
of enlightened public service by a famous printing firm — the gift of an 
outstanding lithographic masterpiece, the complete set of the Illustrations 
to Hamlet by Eugene Delacroix, to be a permanent memorial and a further 
link between lithography and the name Ketterlinus, which already has a 
long and honorable history as regards lithographic printing in Philadelphia. 



DECORATIVE ARTS 

Mrs. Widener Dixon added a third, Don Quixote guided by Folly, to the 
two tapestries of the famous Gobelins series from cartoons by Coypel and 
Desportes previously given by her. Clifford Lewis, Jr. gave a 17th century 
Brussels tapestry by Jan Raes, the Marriage Feast, from the Samson 
series lent by him to the Museum. Other important textiles received in- 



19 



eluded a Coptic group from Mrs. Bayard Henry, a Louis XVI lampas 
from Philip H. and A. S. W. Rosenbach, and a Flemish bobbin lace flounce 
of the early 18th century from Mrs. Henry Belin du Pont in memory of 
Mrs. Alexis I. du Pont. 

Items of furniture were also of importance: a fine varguefio given by 
Mrs. F. W. Elliott Farr, an English Tudor turned chair purchased from 
the Seeler Fund income; several admirable English 18th century pieces 
given by John H. McFadden, Jr.; a famous Pergolesi painted sideboard 
given by Charlton Yarnall; a remarkable New York Chippendale card 
table purchased from the Harrison Fund income. 

Two groups of ceramics of modern design— by Gertrud and Otto Natzler 
and by Russel Wright — were given by Mrs. Herbert Cameron Morris and 
by Miss Joan Prentice, respectively. 

Of exceptional moment were the acquisitions of silver, headed by the 
purchase of the superb figural salt cellar by Antoine-Sebastien Durand, 
1757, with the arms of the Due d'Orleans, a work of the French rococo in 
its most delightful moment. Also remarkable are the pair of silver-gilt 
and rock-crystal Tudor candlesticks of 1592 given by Mrs. John Winter- 
steen and Henry P. Mcllhenny; the epergne by Edward Romer, London, 
1773, a Livingston heirloom given by Mrs. F. S. Crofts; and the Phila- 
delphia tea service by Joseph Lownes and Joseph Anthony, Jr., received 
under the will of Clarissa Townley Chase from her brother, Samuel 
Hart Chase. 

EASTERN ART 

Mrs. William Crozier generously added to the Crozier collection two 
18th century Chinese paintings: one large one of a White Eagle and Pine 
Tree with the signature of Lang Shih-ning, the Jesuit priest Castiglioni 
who was artist to the. Imperial Court; the other, of great size, a 
charming study of lotus flowers, is mounted beneath an Imperial dragon 
and bears the seal of the Dowager Empress, Tzii Hsi. 

John Story Jenks, late Chairman of the Committee on Museum, gave, 
among other works, a group of 57 pieces of Chinese blue and white "Nan- 
king" porcelain of the 18th century. 

Mr. and Mrs. Morton E. Snellenburg presented a Japanese wooden 
figure of a Bodhisattva, gilded and lacquered. 

David Hunter McAlpin lent a group of important Chinese ritual bronzes, 
ranging from the Shang through the Han dynasties.

HOUSING 

Four new galleries were constructed, enlarging the Mediaeval Section to 
receive the Barnard Collection. 



SHOWING 

Our basic function of showing works of art embraces much more than a 
static display of objects from the permanent collections. These themselves 
are rearranged as additional works are received and additional gallery 
space becomes available; our own things — both drawn from our display 
galleries and from our reserves — are grouped with temporary loans in 
transient exhibitions here; works which can be spared are lent by us for 
display elsewhere, sometimes in groups which circulate to several other 
places, sometimes singly for the transient exhibitions of other institutions, 
sometimes on a year to year basis to institutions to which they are more 
relevant. 

INSTALLATIONS 

The five galleries constructed in 1944-45 were hung by Mr. Clifford with 
our extensive collection of Mexican painting from the 18th to the 20th 
centuries, doubtless the most extensive and important in this field outside 
of Mexico. 

The major task of the year was the installation, under Mr. Marceau's 
direction, of the immense accessions of mediaeval art of the Barnard 
Collection. Its completion gave us fifteen units, including three of great 
size, richly fitted with works of the highest quality — an ensemble exceeded 
in America only by The Cloisters in New York. 

EXHIBITIONS 

With the return of peace, it has again become possible to organize loan 
exhibitions of the first importance. By the aid of generous gifts, a moderate 
budget appropriation, and the accumulated earnings of our circulating 
exhibitions, we were able to take good advantage of these possibilities. 
Indeed our exhibition schedule was never richer, whether for the number 
of major shows or their individual importance. 

Our chief exhibition of the year was a comprehensive one of the works 
of Corot, organized by Mr. Marceau. With few exceptions occasioned by 
legal restrictions or by standing policies, it included the major works of 



21 



the artist in America, the collections of which so richly represent him at 
his best. Never has so great and varied a body of his finest work been 
assembled — indeed the Director of the Musees de France has stated that 
the museums and collections there would not provide today an equal 
body of works. 

A series of group shows by Philadelphia painters, organized by Mr. Clifford, 
was opened by an exhibition of artists of the old Philadelphia Press: 
William J. Glackens, George Luks, Everett Shinn and John Sloan — two 
of them happily among the living. It was followed by an exhibition of 
the work of two distinguished living Philadelphians, Arthur Carles and 
Franklin Watkins. The series will be continued next year, affirming once 
more our conviction of the endless renewal of creative art and the part 
which our own artists are taking in this. 

The exhibition Styles in Silver was shown in twenty of our rooms and 
galleries of the corresponding periods of French, English and American 
art of the 17th to 20th centuries. About 750 pieces were assembled and 
arranged by Miss Prentice, including loans from no less than 85 museums 
and collectors from Boston to Washington, many pieces of the greatest 
magnificence. The show, as its title indicates, emphasized especially the 
element of style, in its evolution, brought out both by the arrangement 
and by extensive interpretative labelling. 

To the three exhibitions last mentioned special numbers of the Museum 
Bulletin were devoted. 

An exhibition China Old and New was mounted jointly by the Division 
of Education and the Division of Eastern Art, in the persons of Mr. 
Benson and Miss Lee. It included, but was augmented beyond, a panel 
exhibition made in conjunction with Mr. Earl B. Milliette, Director of the 
Department of Fine and Industrial Art of the Board of Public Education, 
for circulation in the Philadelphia schools. This included original works 
as well as photographic enlargements and explanatory captions, relating 
the art of China to its land, people, religion and history. 

Seven exhibitions in the Print Gallery were developed and commented 
with Mr. Zigrosser's accustomed skill. Of these the Architectural Prints 
and the Color Prints and Color Printing were especially original in treat- 
ment, while the material of the Kaethe Kollwitz Memorial has already 
been embodied in a book-manuscript, and will be circulated this fall to 
other institutions.

EVENTS 

All museum members were invited to the two major openings of the 
year, inaugurating the Barnard and Corot exhibitions. The former took 
the character of a Christmas party, with seasonal decorations and special 
lighting and with music by the Trapp Family Singers in the Great Hall — 
an occasion not soon to be forgotten. Before the Corot private view there 
was a subscription luncheon in honor of American collectors, to which 
guests came from many other cities, and at which the French Ambassador 
was the principal speaker. 

For the other openings we had the benefit of private hospitality on the 
part of the Associate Committee of Women and other, anonymous donors, 
for lenders and the higher classes of membership. The parties on these 
occasions were, like the others, imaginatively varied under Miss Prentice's 
leadership, recreating McSorley's Bar for the Artists of the Philadelphia 
Press, an old New Orleans cafe for the Carles-Watkins show. A special 
feature of these occasions was the floral decorations made with great 
originality by J. Liddon Pennock. At the Silver opening tea was served 
from some of our own magnificent services, and distinguished flower 
arrangements were made by Mrs. C. Frederick C. Stout in silver vases 
from the collections. 

LOANS TO OTHERS 

The Museum continues to have on deposit at other museums, at historic 
houses and other institutions where their presence is more appropriate 
than with us, some 4500 objects, often of anthropological, technical or 
historical character. In very few cases do these institutions have reciprocal 
deposits in our Museum, or material suitable to exchange with us. By

pa 



instruction of our Trustees we are seeking where possible to have our loans 
acquired by the depositary institutions through purchase, so that, with 
the proceeds, we can acquire art objects more suitable to our own program. 
Aside from such long-term deposits, the Museum this year lent 179 
objects for temporary exhibition at 28 institutions elsewhere, while we 
borrowed, for transient exhibitions here, 162 objects (aside from prints) 
from 37 institutions, not to speak of a greater number from private indi- 
viduals. Chief among our loans to others were eight paintings for the 
exhibition of American art at the Tate Gallery in London this summer. 
Including loans from the Johnson and other City collections, there were 
seven of historic masterpieces of earlier American painting, a greater 
number than from any other single institution. 

Aside from all the above, we circulated two major exhibitions of our 
paintings, of Russian Art, and of Thomas Eakins. Under the efficient 
management of Miss Givens these each received 5 showings, carrying our 
works of art to eight principal American cities, where they were seen by 
56,024 visitors. Our educational exhibitions, partly of reproductive mate- 
rial, now number 17, including two new ones added during the year, 
Artists Look Like This (generously given us by R. Sturgis Ingersoll) and 
China Old and New, both already scheduled for a three-year period. 

PRESERVING 

Important projects of conservation were successfully completed by Mr. 
Marceau and Mr. Rosen during the fall and winter months of the past 
year. These included: 

The repair, wax impregnation and cleaning of the carved portions of the 
Antwerp Altarpiece acquired with the George Grey Barnard Collection, 
the repair and cleaning of the painted shutters and predella of the altar- 
piece, and certain structural work on the casing of the altarpiece to exclude 
dust and to preserve the brilliance of the sculpture. The carved and 
polychromed group of St. Martin and the Beggar, also from the Barnard 
Collection, treated by wax impregnation, cleaned and repaired. Both of 
these major operations were made possible by the recent installation in 
the Museum's restoration shop of an electrically operated and controlled 
wax-immersion tank of our own design. 

Restoration of the following pictures in the Elkins Collection was made 
possible by the Commissioners of Fairmount Park through a grant for 
the purpose from the Elkins Fund income: relining and cleaning of The 



25 



Triumph of Neptune and Amphitrite by Nicolas Poussin, and of the Staircase 
Group by Charles Willson Peale; the cleaning of portraits of Mrs. McCall 
by Sir Henry Raeburn, Mrs. James Fraser by Sir Thomas Lawrence, 
Mrs. Tudway by Thomas Gainsborough, The WiUett Children by George 
Romney and Miss Linley by Thomas Gainsborough. 

RECORDING 

In addition to recording current accessions and incorporating in the 
catalogue the information regarding them supplied by the curators, the 
Registrar's Office also takes care of the receipt and dispatch of all loans 
for exhibitions, incoming and outgoing, with the placing of insurance 
thereon. The large number of our transient exhibitions has made the 
work in these regards particularly heavy this year. 

Photography is one principal method of recording objects. Our photo- 
graphic studio, manned by one photographer and one young assistant, 
accomplishes an incredible amount of this. Of small record photographs 
proper it produced about 700 negatives and 4100 prints, of photographs 
for publications and publicity (mostly 8 x 10) nearly 1000 prints, beside 
some 1500 prints for sale. All this was in addition to over 500 negatives 
in color for lantern slides, beside about 200 negatives and enlargements 
for inclusion in educational exhibitions. A relatively small additional 
number of negatives and prints were made by outside photographers. 

STUDYING 

As usual, members of the staff were well represented by contributions to 
knowledge and to understanding published in numerous learned journals, 
including the Gazette des Beaux Arts, Quarterly Journal of the Library of 
Congress, Mouseion, Art News, Antiques, among others. The scientific 
catalogue of the Corot exhibition, as edited by Mr. Marceau and Miss 
Sweeny, with an important introduction generously contributed by 
Lionello Venturi and translated by Henry Furst, also ministered freshly 
both to knowledge and understanding, as did the four issues of the Museum 
Bulletin, serving as catalogues of four other exhibitions. 

Our indispensable tool of research, the Library, was enriched by 466 vol- 
umes, including large groups given by Mrs. F. Woodson Hancock and 
Mrs. Lea Hudson in memory of Mrs. Charles M. Lea, and by Mr. and 
Mrs. Alexander C. Groome in memory of Miss Nancy Andrews Reath.

INTERPRETING 

The various activities of the Division of Education were continued, with 
a total attendance at occasions here of 78,428. 

Special mention is due of the Art Field Days for classes from the Phila- 
delphia public schools, which drew a participation of 15,000. The arrange- 
ments for a second series of these, dealing with China, were further devel- 
oped jointly by the Museum's Division of Education under Mr. Benson 
and by the Philadelphia Board of Education's Department of Fine and 
Industrial Art, under Earl B. Milliette, its Director. Jack Bookbinder, 
Special Assistant in that Department, acted most effectively as master 
of ceremonies, and the other personnel, both for the musical program 
and for projection, were provided by the Board of Education, which also 
made generous allocations for printing and other materiel in connection 
with the Field Days and with the exhibition China Old and New shown 
in connection with them. The Museum is deeply grateful to Dr. Stoddard, 
Superintendent of Schools, and his associates for their far-seeing initiative 
in this pioneer program. 

Our film projection room was rebuilt and was supplied with wholly new 
and superior equipment toward which Lessing J. Rosenwald, John S. W. 
Holton, Mr. and Mrs. Hervey S. Walker, Harry Buten and John F. Lewis 
made generous contributions. 

Color slides added during the year numbered 4200 of which 1500 were 
placed on permanent deposit by the American Council of Education. 
Black and white slides to the number of 2000 — large groups being given 
by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and by Mrs. R. Tait McKenzie — 
brought the total number of slides available for rental to 35,000. Robert 
P. Chapman added a quantity of large photographs and negatives from 
the collection of his father, Samuel H. Chapman. 

An illustrated leaflet What to See at the Art Museum, given free to visitors, 
supplied a need long felt. 

A good beginning was made this year in enlarging the number available 
for sale of color reproductions from our paintings. Seven large collotype 
reproductions were undertaken by various publishers of which six were 
finished during the year and seven sets of plates for smaller four-color 
letterpress prints were made chiefly of other subjects, from which prints 
from two are already for sale. 



27 



ADMINISTERING 

To make and run a museum, like any other human enterprise, the first 
requirement is men. We are fortunate in having a seasoned administrative 
and curatorial staff, young yet already of many years of experience. The 
services of the chief of these, Henri Marceau, were recognized by his 
being named Associate Director. Mr. Mcllhenny, now out of the Navy, 
will return in October to his post as Curator of Decorative Arts. Miss 
Prentice, who alone bore the burden in this department during his long 
absence on war service, has now been appointed Curator of Ceramics 
and Metalwork, two fields in which her connoisseurship and activity 
have been outstanding. Edward Watson brought to the Department of 
Buildings, as Assistant General Superintendent, his effectiveness and 
experience. Miss Rachel Haines and Miss Mabel Steele Jones generously 
contributed their valuable services during the year, as did, on more than 
one occasion, various former members of the staff. 

Beside men, the chief requisite of operation is money. City Council gener- 
ously increased its appropriation for care and maintenance of art museums 
in 1946 to $243,480, beside making in 1945 a special appropriation of 
$8500 earmarked for repairs to the building. The Commissioners of Fair- 
mount Park allotted from the restricted Wilstach, Elkins, and Lea trust 
funds under their control $5872 for operation, $3750 for the restoration 
of paintings, and $7500 toward purchase of works of art. The entire 
administrative, curatorial, educational, secretarial and clerical staffs (aside 
from that of the Department of Buildings), as well as exhibitions and 
activities, are supplied and paid for by corporate funds of the Philadelphia 
Museum of Art. To meet the cost of these beyond the income provided 
by endowment and memberships, living friends of the Museum gave 
$41,340 during the year, in addition to contributing largely toward pur- 
chases of works of art. Another large share of the cost of activities, totalling 
$18,412 (not reflected in the budget), was provided by earnings of the 
Museum for various services. 

Public attendance increased sharply, to pre-war levels, from the beginning 
of 1946, up 28% in the first five months, resulting in a gain for our fiscal 
year 1945-46 of 13% and a total attendance for the year of 518,318. 
This was at a cost of 11^ per inhabitant of metropolitan Philadelphia — a 
figure which compares very favorably with those prevailing elsewhere, 
and certainly seems very little in relation to the advantages and enjoy- 
ment secured. 



28 



The long struggle to give the Philadelphia Museum its rightful place 
among the great museums of the country and of the world has been 
rewarded by a widespread recognition that such a place has been attained. 
We still have the task of reinforcing its collections at the top, of expanding 
their base even more widely, and of placing the whole on a more secure 
and permanent financial foundation. 

Respectfully submitted,

THE REPORT OF THE DEAN OF THE ART SCHOOL 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND TRUSTEES OF THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART 

I have the honor to submit this, my Annual Report for the School Year 
ending June 1, 1946. 

Two dates, May 8 and September 2, 1945, will live long in our memories. 
The first marked the end of hostilities in Europe, the second brought 
the war in the Pacific to a close. With the cessation of hostilities, we began 
to travel the road back to rehabilitation. 

From the standpoint of our School, this meant the steady return of former 
students, who had left in the mid-years of their various courses, to enter 
the Armed Forces. 

The veterans who have returned to the School to finish their Art Educa- 
tion, have been welcomed back wholeheartedly by the faculty, for in 
their work they have shown seriousness of purpose and maturity of mind. 
The cessation of hostilities also resulted in a heavy registration in the 
Freshman Class. It was necessary, therefore, to close the registration for 
the first semester, the second week in November, as we had 180 students 
registered in the first year. 

The exception to this general ruling, however, occurred when one of our 
students, released from the Armed Forces, returned. In every instance 
if the student had been in good standing at the time of his induction into 
the Armed Forces, a place was found for him. 
The Registration for the School Year of 1945-46 is as follows: 

Art Day School 

1st year 205 

2nd year 135 

3rd year 95 

4th year 52 

487 

Part-time 115

Total 1385

This year our Commencement Exercises were again held in the West 
Foyer of The Philadelphia Museum of Art on the morning of Thursday, 
6th of June. The graduating class consisted of 40 students, ten of whom 
received their degree of Bachelor of Applied Art in Education, while 30 
received the diploma of the School. The graduating class of 1946 is the 
class that felt most directly the effect of the war, which resulted in this 
rather small but select group. 

The Costume Design Class was especially affected and it was due to the 
small numbers in the Senior class that it was found impossible to present 
the Fashion Show this year. 

With a good Junior class coming up, however, we have been laying the 
ground work, built upon good design and craftsmanship for the presenta- 
tion of our Annual Fashion Show in the Spring of '47. 

The class work of this department was supplemented by the students, 
accompanied by their instructor, attending a number of events of par- 
ticular interest to students of Costume Design. Among the most outstand- 
ing of these events were: 

Oct. 22— Forum— "The Clothes You Wear"— 
Strawbridge & Clothier — Philadelphia 
Oct. 25 — Luncheon — Fashion Group — -New York 
"Paris Fashions" 

Fashion Show — New York Times — N. Y. 
Oct. 26 — Costume Institute — New York 

Fashion Show — New York Times — N. Y. 
Nov. 5 — Luncheon — Elizabeth Penrose — 

Editor of "Glamour" — Fashion Group — 
Philadelphia 
Nov. 14 — Lecture — Wholesale Designing- 
Fashion Group — New York City 
Nov. 26 — Luncheon — Fashion Show — 

Fashion Group — New York City 

ADVERTISING DESIGN AND ILLUSTRATION 

In teaching the subjects, Advertising and Illustration, as well as other 
major courses, we aim as far as possible to train the student first as an 
artist. It is for this reason that in our curriculum, great emphasis is placed 
upon drawing and painting, for it is in these classes that the student gains 



38 



most readily the knowledge of proportion, selection, arrangement and 
the essential properties of design. It is here he develops his technical 
abilities that form the means for the expression of ideas with artistry in 
his major subject. 

Four months ago, at the beginning of our second semester, Ray Ballinger, 
after his two years in service of the Armed Forces, returned to the faculty 
to again head the Course in Advertising Design. I also take this oppor- 
tunity of expressing my appreciation to Arthur Williams, who helped us 
out so splendidly during Mr. Ballinger's absence. 

The end of the war and Mr. Ballinger's return to the teaching staff has 
enabled us to reorganize the Advertising Course along many beneficial 
lines. Of great interest to us all was the appointment of Ben Rose as 
photography instructor, thus again establishing this course, discontinued 
during the war due to the shortage of photographic material. 

Through the interest of Mr. Guy Fry, President of The Art Directors 
Club, an arrangement has been made whereby a full scholarship will be 
awarded to a student of outstanding merit in the Advertising Design 
Class. The school will give the scholarship to the student selected by the 
Art Directors Club, in return for which, a group of eight members of the 
club will, from time to time, present lectures on discussions specific to 
this field. 

The Art Directors Club have also selected a Jury of Awards from among 
their members, who have presented a handsome certificate of merit to 
the outstanding student in the Senior Class. This will be an annual event 
and a much coveted award. 

Mr. McCandlish, of the McCandlish Lithographic Corporation has pre- 
sented the School with a collection of Holwein's posters. These posters 
were acquired by Mr. McCandlish in Europe. This valuable collection of 
one of the great artists in poster design is deeply appreciated. 

A very interesting problem in the form of a competition was presented 
in the classes in Advertising Design and the class in Illustration, by the 
Du Pont Company, for poster ideas for their product "Five Star Anti- 
Freeze." Awards amounting to $275.00 were distributed among the stu- 
dents who competed. Because of the satisfactory solution of their problems 
and the fine quality of the work submitted, several additional Honorable 
Mentions were awarded. 

As in previous years a number of Artists, prominent in their fields, were 



39 



brought into the Composition Class as guest critics for both the Adver- 
tising and Illustration Classes. They were Mr. Oliver Swan, Art Director 
of Macrae-Smith Co.; Mr. Albert Gold, one of the Official War Artists; 
Mr. Grant, Advertising Manager of General Outdoor Advertising; Mr. 
Eugene, Art Director of the Du Pont Corporation; Mrs. Flood, Free 
Lance Fashion Artist; Leonard Leoni, Artist; Miss Jones and Miss Vink, 
Editors of Jack and Jill; and Mr. Lyle Justise, Illustrator. 



TEACHER EDUCATION 

The past year has been an unusually interesting one in the Teachers' 
Education Division. Returned veterans of fine calibre, and with a serious 
purpose, have added interest and zeal to the work of this class. 

Forty students are enrolled in this department, ten of whom in the Senior 
Class, received their Degree of Bachelor of Applied Art in Education. I am 
happy to report that all of last year's graduates of this department have 
been successfully placed in teaching positions. 

In a careful study of the curriculum of the Teachers' Course, as directed 
and approved by the Board of Education of the State, it soon becomes 
apparent that these students have a great many Academic Subjects on 
their roster, which naturally cuts down the time devoted to drawing, 
painting, water color, etc. The Board of Trustees, therefore, has granted 
the privilege to the graduates of this class, of returning for one year, at a 
greatly reduced tuition, for graduate work, devoted exclusively to Art 
Subjects. In time, this will redound to the credit of the School, as we 
will turn out very much better prepared artists in this field. For those 
students who will be able to avail themselves of this opportunity, the 
reward will be very great. 

During the Winter months, the regular observation schedules to visit the 
Art Classes of the Public Schools were arranged through the courtesy 
and cooperation of Mr. Earl Milliette and his staff of the Art Department 
of the Public Schools. Current Exhibitions both at the Museum and 
Academy of Fine Arts were attended by the class under trained supervision. 

A recently purchased Bell & Howell 16 m.m. sound projector has been of the 
greatest aid to Dr. Thomas, in his visual Education Course, as well as in 
Sociology, Education, Art and History. More and more as the sources 
become available, we are using visual aids extensively in our work. 



40 



STAGE COSTUME 

The Stage Costume Class, though small in numbers, has had a very 
active, interesting and productive year. The students of this class, com- 
missioned by Van Horn & Sons and under the direction of Mrs. West, 
made fifty hats and headdresses for the current production of the Mask 

6 Wig Club. Their work was so successfully executed, that the same 
arrangement was made with Van Horn for seventy-five headdresses for 
the New Orleans Mardi Gras. As this work was done professionally, it 
was of great value to the students. 

On the evening of May 2, 3, and 4 the students of the school presented at 
the Little Theatre of The Plays and Players Club, the interesting Chinese 
play "The Yellow- Jacket." The play was admirably directed by J. Kirk 
Merrick. Under the direction of Helen Stevenson West, thirty-three 
elaborate costumes, complete with headdress and accessories were made; 
also props and stage set were executed by the students of the Stage Costume 
Department, aided by interested volunteers from other classes. 

The play was a financial success, and judging from the favorable press 
criticisms, I feel I can say it was likewise an artistic success. 

SATURDAY MORNING JUNIOR CLASS 

A very successful and interesting department of our school is the Saturday 
Morning Junior Class under the direction of Mrs. Starr. It is an inspiring 
sight to see this gathering of some 480 students, ranging from the age of 

7 to 16, filling our school on Saturday mornings. 

There are many reasons back of our intense interest in this Saturday 
Morning School. If, as we believe, there will be no great Contemporary 
American Art unless we have an intelligent audience for the artist, we 
feel it is part of our educational work to help cultivate this audience. 
So, we plan for the student to visit the Museum for research work and 
study, to attend local exhibitions, to enjoy the School Library. We aim 
to develop the student as a cooperative, industrious citizen, to let him 
adventure freely, yet have the power of judgment and control; to help 
him to observe and think; to work creatively; to form ideas of good taste 
as we understand it; and to encourage him to express creatively his dreams 
and ideas in charcoal, crayon, pencil, pen and ink, water color, clay 
or pastel. 

We want to provide happy, profitable Saturdays for the many and to 
prepare the serious, gifted student for further training. 



41 



EVENING INTERIOR DECORATION COURSE 

A new evening course in Interior Decoration was started this winter on 
the basis of the salesman decorator, rather than that of the studio designer. 
The course has included lectures on furniture, functional planning, color, 
business practice and other elements of decoration essential to the beginner 
in the business. 

Many of the students have already found employment in the various 
branches of decorative trade, and fifteen members of the class have satis- 
factorily completed the first year of the planned two year course. 

All of these have signified their intention of returning next October to 
complete the Course. 

LIRRARIAN'S REPORT 

During the School year, 1945-1946, there have been added to the Library 
150 books — of which 40 were gifts — and 435 plates. 

The acquisition of the Carnegie Collection of art books and photographs 
from the Graphic Sketch Club, now the Fleisher Art Memorial, has 
splendidly augmented our Library collection. This collection is open to 
students of both schools. 

The attendance has been excellent, some ten thousand visits having been 
made during the School year. 

We wish to acknowledge with deep appreciation the books from the 
following donors: 

Mr. W. Ward Bean Mrs. Lea Hudson 

Mr. Riese Von Bohr, a student Mrs. Henry S. Jeanes 

Mrs. F. Woodson Hancock Mr. Staunton Peck 

On the 17th of March, the school suffered a great loss in the death of 
M r s. Rebecca Gumbes, who for seventeen years held the important posi- 
tion of Recorder and Secretary to the Dean. During these years her 
interest and loyalty to the school never faltered. Her loss is deeply felt, 
for in her position, her graciousness and lovely personality lent great 
dignity to the school. The Faculty and Student Body were devoted to her. 

I wish, also, to express my appreciation to the Associate Committee of 
Women for the generous help they have given us both as to scholarships, 
and to our prize fund. 

Respectfully Submitted, 




Dean.

REPORT OF THE DEAN OF THE PHILADELPHIA 

TEXTILE INSTITUTE 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND TRUSTEES OF THE PHILADELPHIA MUSEUM OF ART 

I am presenting herewith my report for the school year just closed. The 
cessation of hostilities and the ending of the World War has caused rapid 
changes in the student body. The return of former students and the large 
number of veterans applying for admission under the G. I. Bill of Rights 
has filled all classes. We have now reached our capacity; in fact, we have 
enrolled more than our capacity in order to give the returning veterans 
the advantages they have missed in the last four or five years. 

The upper classes have been small; consequently, at the mid-winter 
Commencement, only six degrees were awarded. Mr. Herman E. Michl, 
a former member of our faculty, and of the Wharton School of the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, delivered the address. 

At the spring Commencement three degrees were awarded, one diploma, 
and one certificate for evening school. This picture will soon change, as 
we have many former graduates returning to complete the work necessary 
for their degree, having received a diploma before the degree-granting 
power was given to the Institute. 

Our present enrolment represents students from twenty States, Canada, 
Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Haiti, Iran and Turkey. Over seventy per cent 
of the students are veterans. 

Several new courses were added to the curriculum this year. Knitting, 
which is now considered a major textile industry and one of great impor- 
tance in the Philadelphia area, was given two considerations by the 
addition of a four-year knitting degree course, and a three-year knitting 
diploma course. These courses are complete and comprehensive, embracing 
the study of Yarns, Chemistry, Dyeing, and all other essential subjects 
to make top men for that field. These new courses were received with 
great acclaim by men in the industry. 

Following a precedent of the past year, the cooperative courses with the 
Art School, for Art students who have been enrolled in the Textile Insti- 
tute for courses of instruction in the technical details of reproducing pat- 
terns in fabrics, have been successfully carried out. It is our belief that 
these students have benefited greatly by this cooperative work. General 



45 



work in all the courses has been stiffened in order that the students may get 
the very latest information regarding the new developments that have taken 
place in the textile industry during the war. 

To aid the work in the various courses, a number of guest instructors 
and lecturers have visited the Institute. In this connection, I would like 
to mention the visit of Colonel Albert Dennis of the Quartermaster Corps, 
who demonstrated and lectured to one of the classes on the use of Vecto- 
graph three-dimensional photography. Others who visited the school 
were : Joseph Truitt and Charles Wilson of the American Viscose Corpora- 
tion, and Mr. Knight of Continental Mills, and to each of these gentlemen, 
we give our thanks for their kind cooperation and the splendid manner 
in which they fitted their programs into the general curriculum of the 
school. 

A group of teachers from the Primary Textiles Institute of Toronto visited 
the Institute; they were engaged to manage a school in Hamilton, Ontario. 
They spent several days at the Institute, going over in detail some of 
the work they wish to give, and receiving our suggestions as to the best 
methods to pursue in presenting their various topics. This established a 
very cordial relationship between that section of Canada and the Institute, 
and no doubt it has been the cause of our receiving many inquiries and 
applications from that district. 

It is pleasant to report that several manufacturing concerns are sponsoring 
students who are related to employees or who come from the same locality 
in which the concern is situated. These concerns are helping the students 
financially, as well as other ways, so that when they complete their educa- 
tion, they will have an assured position with that concern. This cooperative 
effect with industrial concerns is one that is to be fostered and is a far- 
sighted program on the part of the manufacturing interests that are 
partaking of this plan. 

FACULTY ADDITIONS AND CHANGES: 

Our faculty has, for the most part, remained intact. At the beginning of 
the Fall Semester, Dr. Klaus Schocken accepted a position with a western 
university, and Mr. William Campbell was engaged to take his place as 
instructor in mathematics and physics. 

At the beginning of the Spring Semester, George Decnyf left us to assume 
a responsible position with the United Piece Dye Works in Lodi, New 



44 



Jersey. Mr. Constantin Monego was engaged as assistant professor of 
dyeing. 

With the rapidly increasing enrolment, it has been necessary to add several 
others to our staff: Miss Martha Jungerman is an instructor in Jacquard 
Design and Color; Dr. William Endriss is an assistant professor of Chemis- 
try; Mr. George Deckelbaum is an instructor in Cotton and Knitting; 
Mr. Robert Stafford is an instructor in Hand Weaving; and Mr. Fred 
Marter is an instructor in Weave Formation and Fabric Analysis. These 
additions to the Faculty enabled us to keep pace with the rapidly increas- 
ing enrolment as the year progressed. 

FACULTY ACTIVITIES: 

It has been the policy of the Institute to have the faculty engage in the 
activities of the various scientific and textile organizations, such as The 
Textile Research Institute, the American Association of Textile Technolo- 
gists, the American Chemical Society, the Cotton Textile Institute, the 
American Society for Testing Materials, and the American Association of 
Textile Chemists and Colorists. At all these meetings, one or more faculty 
members and the writer were present, and in many cases they served on 
committees or presented papers; notable among them was Mr. Monego 
who attended the Symposium on Colorimetry and Related Subjects at 
the Optical Society of America in Cleveland, Ohio. He assisted in the 
preparation of a paper which will soon be published. 

The writer and Mr. Theel attended the research meeting of the Quarter- 
master Office in Washington, where the announcement was made that the 
future home of the Research and Development Division of the Office of 
the Quartermaster General would be located in Philadelphia at the Quarter- 
master Depot here. 

The meetings of the National Council of Textile School Deans which was 
attended by the Dean, held in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and Princeton, 
New Jersey, were helpful in bringing a closer association with the other 
textile colleges and institutes in the country. It is my belief that these 
meetings have done much to promote textile education in this country. 

Mr. A. Ward France of our faculty was selected by the Government to be 
a member of a group to visit the textile schools of Germany, Austria, and 
England. Their report brought out many of the important phases of 



45 



textile education in these countries. Many of these schools had been 
wholly or partially destroyed by the war, but the instructors were inter- 
viewed and much valuable information was collected. Through the coopera- 
tion and assistance of the American Viscose Corporation, Mr. France's 
classes were ably taken care of during his absence by Mr. Robert Smith, 
Mr. Robert Pickens, and Mr. Paul Beatty. To these men I wish to express 
my thanks for the able manner in which they conducted the classes. 
These three men are former graduates of the Institute. 

The writer was pleased to attend a luncheon, given in honor of Dr. F. C. 
Toy of the Shirley Institute of England, by the Textile Research Institute 
at its Princeton Laboratory. Dr. Toy was thoroughly familiar with the 
work of our Institute and expressed himself in a complimentary manner 
on our progress. 

At the National Plastics Exhibition held in Detroit and New York, Miss 
Martha Jungerman of our faculty demonstrated on a small hand loom 
how Saran, one of the new extruded fibers, could be made into a fabric. 
The Institute had done considerable research for one of the companies 
along this line, and it was at their invitation that the loom was sent to 
Detroit and New York to show the general public the progress that had 
been made in the handling of this difficult fiber. 

Several societies held their meetings at the Institute during the winter. 
Among them were: The Micro-Chemical Society, the Special Libraries 
Council, The Fiber Society, and a meeting sponsored by the Institute and 
the Philadelphia Textile Manufacturers Association. 

RESEARCH: 

Research has continued to be the big feature of our work. Several of our 
projects have been continued from year to year, notably one with the 
United States Government for the Office of the Quartermaster General. 

There were several other projects with industrial concerns dealing with 
the manipulation of new fibers which have yet to make their appearance 
on the market. A great deal of this work is done in the summer and has 
been continued in the winter, in some cases, with the help of the advanced 
students — particularly those who have returned to work for their degree. 
With the building of a larger faculty, there are a number of projects 
which have been held up, due to the lack of manpower, which will be 



46 



started in the very near future. As most of this work is of a confidential 
nature, it is impossible for us to give details; however, there is one project 
which will be of benefit to the whole textile industry, and that is one 
which will shortly be undertaken by the American Association of Textile 
Technologists, of which the writer is a member of the Board of Governors, 
and also of the Research Committee — the Institute having been selected 
to be one of the active participants in this project, the results of which 
will be published in the Association's proceedings, and full benefit given 
to the entire textile industry. 

ALUMNI ACTIVITIES: 

Our Alumni Association has shown a marked increased activity this year. 
A dinner held in New York on December 14, 1945, was attended by all 
of the faculty. Dr. Harold DeWitt Smith delivered the address, and 
Mr. Alban Eavenson, Vice Chairman of our Board and Chairman of the 
Fund Raising Campaign, was presented with an engrossed set of resolutions 
by the President of the Association, Mr. Carl C. Mattmann, Jr. 

The Annual Dinner was held in Philadelphia on February 1, 1946, and 
Mr. Bradley C. Algeo, first president of the Association, was the speaker. 
Regional meetings have been held in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, 
for the formation of local clubs. 



LIBRARY: 

The library is one of the important features of the Institute, and its 
limitation being lack of space for stacks and reading rooms so that more 
use can be made of it by students, faculty, and the general textile industry. 
This year 210 books, 154 pamphlets, and 11 periodicals have been added. 
Of the 210 books added to the library, 68 were gifts, and 142 were pur- 
chased; of the 154 pamphlets, 151 were gifts, and 3 were purchased. We 
are grateful to the donors for their contributions to the library. Attendance 
in the library was 6,063; 716 books were circulated to students, and 210 
to faculty members. The library collection now numbers 4,775, which 
includes 2,691 books, 733 bound volumes of periodicals, and 1,351 pam- 
phlets. This does not include a number of unbound volumes of periodicals 
that will eventually be bound. The collection of sample books now num- 
bers 302. 



47 



Twice during the year, the Special Libraries Council of Philadelphia and 
vicinity have had meetings at the Institute. In May, the Science Tech- 
nology Group held their final meeting at the Institute. 

Miss Bonner, the librarian, made an extended tour of the South during 
the year, at which time she visited all the libraries of the various textile 
institutes and research organizations south of Philadelphia. Her final report 
was very pleasing, for it showed our library to be in a very fine position 
with reference to the other textile libraries. 

When more space is available, and when all the sample books and the 
other material which is now stored can be made available to the students, 
faculty, and members of the textile industry, the library will be outstanding. 

DONATIONS: 

Our friends in the industry, manufacturers of machines and supplies have 
been wonderful in their cooperation in helping us keep our equipment in 
order, and also furnish some of the raw materials necessary for the students 
to demonstrate their various problems on this equipment. One notable 
donation was three Grosser Hand Knitting Machines, which will aid 
greatly in our new knitting courses. These machines are hard to obtain 
at the present time, and to have this donation of three brand-new machines 
was indeed a very valuable addition to our equipment. We have also had 
donated to us another knitting machine and a twisting machine for our 
yarn preparation. Neither of these machines has been delivered, due to 
the scarcity of materials which the machine manufacturers have experi- 
enced; at any rate, we expect them both in a short time, so that they 
will be in a position to be used in the next year. 

We are grateful to our many friends, and wish to thank them for their 
donations of yarns, supplies, advertising space, machinery, etc. They are

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
SAMUEL S. FLEISHER ART MEMORIAL 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

The creative impulse is inherent in normal human beings. It is the con- 
tinuing motive that leads from savagery to civilization. It is a worthy 
motive that finds for nearly everyone a concrete outlet for expression in 
drawing, painting and sculpture as well as music, and this expression is a 
real source of interest, pleasure, pride and development of character. 

With a realization of this, the late Samuel S. Fleisher devoted the better 
part of his life to establishing the Graphic Sketch Club and perpetuating 
it by his Will as his Memorial. Here those who wish to draw, paint and 
model for simple enjoyment of doing, are welcomed, aided by competent 
instruction, without rules and restrictions necessary to professional 
schools, and free of all tuition charges. 

The Memorial has just completed a full year's operation under the guidance 
of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We believe it has lived up to the aims 
of its founder, brought the benefits he visualized and offered, to an in- 
creasing number of persons and expanded its activities and usefulness. 

It will be recalled that the trustees of Mr. Fleisher's estate, at the stipula- 
tion of the Museum, made every provision against fire hazard. The 
Museum's first undertaking was to sort out a large accumulation of less 
desirable and duplicate art objects not needed, whose removal and dis- 
posal made much greater class room space available. The second step was 
thorough repairing, painting, lighting and putting the classrooms in 
the best possible condition for use, which resulted as hoped in students 
coming in increased numbers as soon as the increased facilities were there 
to care for them. 

Classes are now held five nights a week. 1126 adult individuals are en- 
rolled and there is an average attendance of 120 a night. 

The Public Schools through their School Art League have an enrollment 
of 167 in the Saturday morning classes and there are 355 children in the 
Saturday afternoon classes from 4 years to 16 years of age. It is worth a 
visit to the Memorial to see these classes at work. Their interest and 
absorption in what they are doing, on a fine afternoon when they might 
supposedly rather be playing out of doors, is keenly gratifying to those 
carrying on the work of the Memorial. 



51 



The average attendance per week of all classes is between 800 and 900 
students, and total attendance for the scholastic year, 19,205. These are 
large figures for an Art School, showing a great increase under the Museum's 
management and exceeding even our expectations. 

I believe it was Mr. Fleisher's thought when he located the Graphic 
Sketch Club in one of the poorer sections of the city that the student 
attendance would be largely local. If so at any time, it is not so now. 
Philadelphia and its suburbs cover a wide area and our students come 
from every part of it. It speaks well for their appreciation of what the 
Memorial has to offer them that attendance averages so well, for it is 
entirely voluntary and the location to many, is not readily accessible. 
Looking over the registration of our college registrants we find students 
taking elsewhere other forms of education, housewives, secretaries, 
teachers, business men, advertisers, engineers, designers, architects, naval 
officers and men enlisted in both Navy and Army, accountants, librarians, 
draftsmen, chemists, artists, auditors, editors, doctors, clergymen, a 
nurse, social worker, a Red Cross director, a physiologist and a biologist. 
Truly the love of art is well-nigh universal, and the opportunity the 
Memorial offers so freely for its expression, instruction and gratification 
with the resultant development of culture and character is a noble under- 
taking worthy of even such a great institution as the Philadelphia Museum 
of Art. 

While the Memorial is in no way a technical or professional school seeking 
to train its students for a future career in art, though a few may go on to 
that, some through our School of Industrial Art, we strive to maintain the 
high standard of instruction that has always prevailed at that School and 
are able to use the services of a number of the same instructors. 

The fine facilities of the Memorial have here-to-fore been unused during 
the summer months. Our desire is to broaden the usefulness in every good 
way. So we are gladly arranging for a Summer School in response to a de- 
mand of some 160 students who have so far enrolled. This School will be 
conducted two nights a week at the Memorial and outdoor classes on 
Saturday mornings for six weeks from July 8 to August 17th. 

The Graphic Sketch Club as the Memorial was formerly called was known 
widely through Mr. Fleisher's benevolent personality both in this Country 
and abroad and has always had many interested visitors who were and 
are most cordially welcomed. We are glad to tell them its purposes and 



52 



show how they are carried out, as well as to show the current exhibitions 
and the crowning one of all, the Sanctuary, with the music of its fine 
organ. This is a truly unique and beautiful building filled with a great 
collection of unusual and really fine objects of religious art all of which 
have been retained. Except for general cleaning, including the windows 
and some improvements in the arrangement and lighting, it is unchanged 
from the days when Mr. Fleisher loved to linger in it. He liked to think 
of it as a Sanctuary, a place of beauty for quiet and meditation. It has an 
atmosphere which justifies the name he gave it. 

Apart from the classes, visitors to the Memorial from October 1st, 1945 
to June 1st, 1946 were 6041. 

There have been a regular series of exhibitions on the first and second 
floors during the year. The Inaugural Exhibition of works of former art 
students and teachers; the unique collection of cartoons of noted musicians 
by Alfred Bendiner; the well-known prints of birds in motion by Richard 
L. Bishop; water colors by William Barnett, Isaiah Hook, and Benjamin 
Eisenstat, former students of ours, made while in the armed services; 
work of the students of the School Art League, their annual exhibition. 
Not all but much of their work is done at our School. Annual Exhibition 
of the work of the students of the Fleisher Memorial, at the close of the 
classes. 

A number of entertainments have been given at the Memorial during the 
school year and the attendance at these even on one or two evenings of 
very bad weather has been most gratifying, in fact just about taxing 
capacity to the limit. Most pleasing, however, to the Memorial's manage- 
ment has been the general enthusiasm shown freely by the guests. 

Notable entertainments were: The Inaugural Opening of the New School 
year in our own rooms under the direction of the Philadelphia Museum of 
Art. This was held in accordance with the custom of past years on 
November 28th, the birthday of Mr. Samuel Fleisher. In addition to the 
invitation list of the past, the members of the Board of Trustees, all the 
several committees and staffs of the Museum were asked and the accep- 
tance of many and their presence at the Memorial was greatly appreciated. 
A Christmas Party was given December 18th for our children, 500 at- 
tended with their parents. I need hardly say they enjoyed it as only 
children can. 



53 



Aii unusual and highly interesting event was a Chamber Music Concert 
in January commemorating the death of Mr. Samuel S. Fleisher. Mr. 
Edwin Fleisher, moved by the same generous impulses as led his brother 
to found the Graphic Sketch Club, has for years carried on a school for 
musicians where they may receive free instruction and practice together. 
The concert was unique in that the program contained compositions never 
before heard in Philadelphia, selected from Mr. Edwin Fleisher's un- 
rivalled collection of musical manuscripts, some by the greatest masters. 
The musicians gave a most admirable performance and a similar and 
equally fine and unique concert was given in April. Both concerts evoked 
the greatest appreciation of the listeners and it is intended that they shall 
be an annual event at the Memorial. 

As the classes at the Memorial are carried on at night, the rooms and 
facilities have been unused in the day hours with exception of Saturday. 
Fortunately, they will be made available to the School of Industrial Art 
the next Fall term, enabling that Institution to meet the urgent demands 
of the United States Government that art instruction be given to G.I.s 
who seek it under the Government provision. This will enable the Art 
School to accept as a patriotic duty some 150 or more G.I. students for 
which no space is available at the School at Broad and Pine Streets. 

The Memorial gladly welcomes every opportunity for usefulness to the 
community that its means afford. 

It is but right that I should conclude by saying that the greatly expanded 
facilities of the Memorial and their use are in large measure due to most 
untiring zeal and enthusiasm both on the part of the Director and staff 
at the Memorial and the Secretary of the Corporation, the Dean and the 
Superintendent of the School of Industrial Art.

REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATE COMMITTEE OF WOMEN 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

There have been many changes and plans to be made by the School of 
Industrial Art and therefore by the Associate Committee of Women. 
Since the coming of Peace last summer, an increased enrollment of veterans 
and many applications for entrance have resulted in full schools with 
over 200 students in the Textile Institute alone. 

The Associate Committee of Women has presented four full scholarships, 
and four part-time scholarships amounting to the sum of $1040 during 
the past year. They also have presented many cash prizes at graduation. 

Our Publicity for the School has been even better than usual and has 
included broadcasts over WCAU. These resulted in several professional 
engagements for members of the School staff. 

Our Library Committee has been active and reported 435 plates and 150 
books of which 40 were gifts. An excellent attendance of 10,000 during 
the school year was recorded. 

The Cafeteria Committee reports serving 31,616 meals to students, an 
increase over last year's total of 24,488. 

The Costume Design Committee's report shows a curtailment of activi- 
ties, as owing to the war they were not able to hold a Fashion Show. The 
class, however, did have a trip to New York to the several shows. The 
outlook for next year is bright. 

During the year there has been in the Associate Committee, one resigna- 
tion and we were grieved by the death of Mrs. Eli Kirk Price. One new 
member and several new officers have been elected. Our Committee 
sponsored a delightful tea at the Museum of Art in April before the opening 
of the Exhibition of Period Silver. This was attended by several hundred 
people. 

The coming year should be bright with the Associate Committee helping 
to fulfill plans for a full enrollment of students and faculty at the School 
of Industrial Art and the Textile Institute, and in aiding the projects of 
our great Museum of Art. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE TREASURER 

TO THE PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The Director of the Museum has covered in his report pertinent financial 
matters so that no comment regarding the Museum is required from the 
Treasurer. 

The Schools faced serious financial problems during the early part of the 
year due to low student enrollment and rising cost of operation. Both 
Schools felt constrained to make modest increases in their yearly tuition 
fees. In the second half of the scholastic year, the Schools were filled to 
capacity due to returning former students from the armed services and 
by new veteran registrants thus enabling both Schools to balance their 
budgets for the year. 

The Schools face, next year, a serious situation to provide additional 
facilities to meet the great, if temporary, demand of returning war veterans 
for educational opportunities. As is well known, the amount of tuition 
received from students is only one of many factors needed to meet the 
cost of operation. Paradoxical as it may seem, after registration has 
reached a certain figure, the more students enroll the greater the cost of 
educating them. However, spurred on by a sense of patriotic obligation 
to returning veterans, the Schools intend to bend every effort to take a 
leading part in fulfilling this obligation. 

The Trustees are deeply indebted to the members of the Committee on 
Finance for the assiduous care with which they managed the Corporation's 
portfolio. Moreover, we are indeed fortunate and grateful, in making our 
investments, to have the facilities of so many leading Philadelphia finan- 
cial institutions at our service. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Treasurer.

To the Board of Trustees 
Philadelphia Museum of Art 
Broad and Pine Streets 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

Gentlemen : 

We have completed our audit of the books and records of the above 
corporation for the fiscal year ended May 31, 1946 and append hereto the 
following exhibits: 

EXHIBIT— "A"— Statement of Assets and Liabilities as of May 31, 

1946. 
EXHIBIT— "B"— Operating Statement for the Fiscal Year ended 

May 31, 1946. 

During the course of our examination we traced into banks all recorded 
receipts and expenditures, as well as reconciling the various bank balances 
with the statements furnished by your depositories at May 31, 1946. 

All vouchers were examined for proper authorization as well as supporting 
invoices. The Cash Receipts and Disbursements were checked into the 
General Ledger, in detail. 

The examination disclosed no irregularities or matters of sufficient im- 
portance to warrant its being directed to the attention of the Board, with 
the exception of Voucher No. 9043 dated March 14, 1946, paid to Wilden- 
stein and Company, Inc., New York City, in the amount of $10,000.00. 
We have been advised by your Treasurer that this represents an option 
payment against the purchase of pictures at some future date and that if 
the option is not exercised then this amount will be returned. The letter 
of transmittal attached to the voucher states that this is as per Mr. 
Stokes' instructions. 

In our opinion, the appended Exhibits correctly set forth the true financial 
position and results of operations respectively, of your corporation, as of 
May 31, 1946. 

Yours very truly, 




Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
